PSXE Poll Update: Dragon Age II Won't Appeal To Everyone
Role-playing remains a niche genre in comparison to the mainstream titles that are so common these days.
But we were flattered to see so many people who wanted to see our video commentary before making a decision, and we hope the full text review assisted in your purchase decision as well. The majority of those interested in the game certainly wanted to hear our take on the highly anticipated sequel, so we'll just keep plugging away on our video content, if you don't mind. We try to put some effort into them, too. At any rate, the game turned out well for most, although the hardcore RPG followers remain confused: it still doesn't qualify as a straight hack 'n slash action/RPG, but what BioWare did remove is still strange...and vexing. No world map through which we can wander and explore? No equipment besides accessories and weapons for party members other than our main character? Fewer overall abilities? A little sad, true, but we still like the game, and we still recommend it (with a caveat or two).
Speaking of our YouTube Channel, we're wondering what you might want to see next. The video commentaries will continue, but we're not sure there's anything between now and L.A. Noire that deserves that attention. What else might you want from us? Please bear in mind that we have one more big announcement that relates to video, but it can't be unveiled just yet... Other ideas?
